With “Arrow” about to wrap up, American network The CW continues to draw inspiration from the Arrowverse with a new series dedicated to Clark Kent and Lois Lane.

The “Superman & Lois” series, while still in development, should reunite actors Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch, reprising their respective “Supergirl” roles.


“Superman & Lois” will focus on the Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane couple as they cope with daily life in spite of pressure from their jobs.


Hoechlin, who played Derek Hale in “Teen Wolf”, joined the Arrowverse in 2016, signing on to the series “Supergirl” as Superman, while Elizabeth Tulloch played his girlfriend Lois Lane, the titular role. Since then, they have appeared in the Arrowverse crossover event “Elsewhere”, and will also feature in the final Arrowverse crossover “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, slated to air in Dec. 2019 and Jan. 2020.

“The Flash” showrunner Todd Helbing will be handling screenwriting duties and executive producing the new series alongside Greg Berlanti (“Flash”, “Arrow” and “Batwoman”). Should The CW greenlight the project, “Superman & Lois” will be the third series about the iconic Daily Planet couple, following “The Adventures of Superman” (1952 to 1958) and “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” with Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain (1993 to 1997).

The new series might bring genre fans consolation as “Arrow” winds down at the end of its eighth season. Another spin-off of “Arrow” is also in development, featuring Katherine McNamara, Katie Cassidy and Juliana Harkavy returning in their respective roles. CL/NVG
